the pictures as they occur. we'll talk to the weather channel's jim cantore down in lower manhattan where there's a lot going on with the high storm surge expected to rise and a crane has toppled in midtown manhattan because of all this wind. this is "hardball," live coverage of hurricane sandy. back with more after this. >>> welcome back to "hardball." hurricane sandy will make landfall in a few hours and while millions along the east coast have yet to see the wors , this storm has to offer, residents are already getting a taste of sandy's wrath, if you will. 375,000 residents were ordered to evacuate from new york city in advance of hurricane sandy's rough winds and high water. the weather channel's jim cantore is with us tonight from battery park, that's in lower manhattan at the very bottom. jim, i see the rough seas out there. this doesn't make any sense to me historically. i grew up in a country, philadelphia, where you had a certain number of snows every winter which were normal. you had your hurricane season around august/september and it was down south. now what is this? we're not gett
to people who are trying to get back on their feet. as jim axelrod reports discovering the benefits of running is more than physical. >> reporter: you might say ann has been running from her problem for years. >> it tore my family apart and it caused hardship and heartache and struggles. >> reporter: that wouldn't do justice to her powerful journey. her father was an alcoholic with a gambling problem. the best prescription for her pain she found was to run. every morning she passed a homeless shelter where the men would cheer her on. >> i realized that here i get to be the runner and they get to be the homeless guys. why can't we all be the runners? >> reporter: hoping to build their self-esteem she started a running club for them. >> i felt i could help my dad in a way i couldn't back then by helping these guys. >> reporter: six years later she's the ceo of back on my feet a nonprofit with branches in nine cities helping the homeless restart their lives. she just opened one at the bowery mission in new york. one rule. no slackers. >> you have to sign a piece. paper that says you'll
democrats, jerry conley, jim moran and bobby scott. the justice department is reviewing. it's interesting to me that small worked for a company known as pinpoint, a subsidiary of strategic allied consulting. that firm is already under investigation in florida. >> this company has come under fire in several areas. serious charges against it in florida. the republican party has severed ties to it. they're doing that in west virginia and colorado. it's an extraordinary turn of events. we are having a huge discussion over voter fraud and here is a company assigned to work for the party in identifying voters and doing the things they do. and evidence -- widespread allegations, serious allegations about their own hanky-panky is coming up. >> news flash. the gentleman you're talking about who's under investigation is still doing work for the republican party in other states. >> right. >> number two, there should have been an immediate investigation and you shouldn't have to wait for the u.s. attorney general, the virginia attorney general should have jumped in and done this and would have been,
jim webb and mark warner win in virginia back when we thought virginia was a red state. you are trying to figure that out in and out. what is virginia? >> virginia is still pretty much a red state. a lot of people say purple. but if you look at the makeup of the general assembly and what's going on in local -- >> still easier to be a local republican, you think, and get elected than being a local democrat? >> well, of course, it depends on the state. i mean, if you're in northern virginia, it's hard to find a republican. if you get down where i live, it's hard to find a democrat with a search warrant. it's the tale of two states, as you're aware, chuck. >> but it's also culture. and i want to say something, a man you're close friends with, jim webb, in an exit interview i did with him, we talked about the specific issue that he thinks president obama is having. and if he weren't having it, this election would be over. here's what he told me. >> i will tell you, i said that directly to the president about two weeks ago. you know, how in the name of the lord can the democratic party, the
sure jim is reelected. jim jordan, bob gibbs are here. and i want to be the senior senator from ohio. we need josh mandel in ohio. we need him now. you know, president obama -- over the last four years has made a lot of decisions. some of them, he siad would result in new jobs that haven't happened. he said he'd cut the deficit. it hasn't happened. we have someone who is running for president who knows how to bring back jobs. he has the experience. he has the experience and the record nd he knows how to work with democrats and repubicansbls and that's why we need mitt romney to fix what's broken and bring back the american dream. i see a uaw member here in front of me. i will talk autos in a way that is straight talk. obama said a few things that, as he said, were "whoppers." he said, you wanted to take those companies through ban kruptcy. it was obama who took gm and chrysler through bankruptcy. it was mitt romney who did provide for loan guarantees. every fact-checker who looked has said that barack obama was wrong and was not telling the truth. this is what is most important, with
who writes in, i would like you to thank our local fire companies for the dedication. my dad, jim lions, who has been a volunteer fireman for 56 years in harford county just left his house to serve us. all those volunteers and paid men and women who are with the fire and police thank you. your job is incredible. there are a few outages now. bge is expecting homes and businesses too lose hower. cheryl o'conner is live with the people of pge. she is going to see when the power will be back on. >> reporter: that's right. we are inside the emergency operation center. i can show you latest on the outage map. primarily it is green. there are a few outages. you can see it is green. state workers are monitoring the very latest conditions. also they are looking at requests from counties. here they deploy extra resources. speaking of help, bge is greeting workers from multiple states. we'll show you activity as the staging ground for the crews. we talked to people from tennessee and illinois busy checking out equipment and making sure they are ready to help out ifpower outages are reported.
and the presidential race, editor of the daily beast and joy an read. jim, i haven't talked to you in a while. but i made a mistake, it was jane bern who benefited from the machine out there. tell us about what your experience is as a general reporter to what weather can do to elections. >> chris, i think as we said before it takes snow and i'm a native new yorker, and very weak response to a huge snowstorm. he lost in chicago in 1979. in the early '90s, a couple of washington bad storms, marion barry's stock plummeted. >> give me the reason for that. why do people have a big scorecard in their heads and hearts about weather and how politicians handle it? >> because if they are deemed to be responsible and affected and efficient, they are allotted. remember, herbert hoover won in 1928 because of what was deemed to be good performance as commerce secretary overseeing the response of the mississippi river flooding. the next year, huey long wins governor ship of mississippi. and in 1994 benefitting from a huge earthquake but the opposite is what we have seen in new york city, chicago, and washington wh
. three years later a really smart guy named jim milstein who was at the treasury department and responsible for the restructuring of a.i.g. he is a lawyer and investment banking restructuring kind of person. and he put out a proposal which has many common ingredients that we saw from the mortgage bankers association. here the emphasis is on a government agency, the federal mortgage insurance corporation, which authorizes, manages, regulates a series of security identifiesers and -- securitizers and the companies are not guaranteed, just the securities are. and the beauty of both proposals is that the technology and infrastructure and systems and human capital of the g.s.e.'s be wasted but compete with them. so i believe there's been some consensus around a proposal that is feasible and would work. one was issued by somebody who had an ax to ground, the mortgage bankers association, but milstein, coming from the treasury department, presumably his view is what is best for the economy but it is a very similar kinds of proposal in my estimation. and i wish that we could move ah
hours, so hold on, everybody. i'm jim handly. >> veronica johnson joins us now. what are we going to see? >> yeah, meteorologist tom kieran has just handed it over to me. he's been watch the storm throughout the morn. you can see the heavy band making its way from areas of eastern shore inland. what we seen out there in areas east, over 5 inches of rain. areas around ocean city. over four inches of rain. getting into areas of delaware, over 3 inches of rain. those are the kind of rainfall amounts we're going to see before long. as, again, the center of hurricane sandy gets closer and closer to us. it's already made that turn not just to the north but towards the north and west. getting closer to the coast. you can see it there. landfall expected somewhere between delaware and the southern new jersey coast around 8:00 or 9:00 p.m. here's the latest track coming out. this should be the 11:00 p.m. track for you. to the north and west. coming ashore around areas of southern new jersey, northern delaware. then again, the storm system, we're really going to see it spread out even more. talking
in hard-hit new york city where president obama has just declared a state of emergency. jim axelrod is at battery park in lower manhattan which was inundated with water. good morning. >> reporter: when i spoke to police commissioner ray kelly here yesterday, i asked him what his biggest concern was about the approaching storm. he didn't hesitate. blackouts, he said. that's exactly what new yor this morning. super storm sandy made landfall late monday. a wet and windy nightmare. >> we knew this was going to be a great, dangerous storm. the storm met our expectations. >> reporter: sandy exceeded them. around 9:00 p.m. the storm produced a record surge at battery park in manhattan. 13.88 feet. breaching the sea wall and flooding the area. manhattan's waterfront seemed to disappear as the surge rushed over the wall. >> unknown. storm of the century. >> reporter: roads and cars were quickly covered. ground zero was engulfed. across the harbor in brooklyn, there was so much flooding around coney island that emergency responders couldn't reach the area. corrosive sea wa
or a businessman? good point. jim irwin on the political side tweeting will hurricane sandy make for paper ballots rather than electronic in states where the power is down? the idea of what we're going to do about election day is starting to loom. that's going to be, i think the next big thing. >> bill: it is because the storm is going to be around for so long and the focus immediately after -- let's say by today right. maybe in parts of jersey and delaware and even here in the d.c. area, it will be clean up rather than more storm. we're not dealing with storm so much as cleanup. that will take a couple of days. >> six and a half million people are without power. six and a half million people are without power and we're a week away from an election. >> bill: charles calling from tampa, florida. hey, charles. >> caller: good morning, bill. i just want to -- fema sent trailers down here years ago to be used. fema said you have to take them. florida wanted to give them back to fema to be used. fema said no. they stay where th
wild out here right now. >> the weather channel's jim cantore with her in new york city. >> will this storm live up to the hype? >> we're going to fd out. this is a factor of the storm beingo big and pushing the wawater up into areas where it can't get out. we saw this with katrina. if the w water comes up as expected, we would be under water, our crew would be under water, the battery park area will be under water. >> donald trump phoning in to me he's staying put in the big apple. >> what -- where are you right now? >>>> i'm in trump tower in my office. >> shouldn't yoube gettiting out of there? >> only because i love new york. we are fully prepared. we know exactly what to do and how to do it. >> you're staying? >> i live or die with it. i built many great ghlings new york and i feel confidence in those buildings because i built them. >> sandy truly a history maker. the stock market's first weather-related shutdown in 27 years. ubway service canceled, grand central station transformed into a ghost town. knbc's chris coleman with mario at the grove. >> what makes this
to a rally this afternoon in the all-important swing state of ohio. our national political correspondent jim acosta joins us now from cleveland with more on what the republican presidential nominee is doing. what's going on, jim? >> reporter: wolf, things are changing by the moment. here with the romney campaign, we can tell you the romney campaign has gone ahead and canceled its events for tonight and tomorrow. he is keeping an event that is happening right around now in iowa -- >> unfortunately we've just lost our connection with jim acosta. we'll reconnect with him. we're watching the political fallout as well from this hurricane disaster that's unfolding. we'll get back to jim acosta. i think we actually have him back right now. jim, are you there? >> reporter: yes, i am, wolf. i don't know how much you heard, but i wanted to reiterate the romney campaign has canceled its events for tonight. it is keeping an event that happened right around now in the state of iowa. but what's interesting that's developed with this campaign is we have not heard definitively where the candidate will be to
rove super pac putting $2 million into pennsylvania. i was on a conference call with jim mess siena and jafds axelrod saying that's a bluff, that pennsylvania is not a problem. if people are worried about coming back from power outages which could last a week or more as they did after irene, and if people cannot get to the polls? this whole thing could be thrown up in the air. >> what's hard for me if you're trying to analyze this, well the president gets to look more presidential and that's good and mitt romney is sidelined or the president's voters won't be able to turn out. what's difficult this is a variable into an evasion that really has not changed basically two plus two has equalled four almost this entire campaign. it's been close. mitt romney has been behind slightly but it's been close. throw this other variable into this problem that we thought we had pretty much close to knowing the answer, close one or way the other, who knows. i think we focus on today, tomorrow but wednesday, thursday, friday, saturday into the weekend, can they resume campaigning? even if they do, t
, experienced photographer jim reid has a new book out, fittingly called, storm chaser. we have him on the phone to talk about that and the magnificent pictures we are seeing from this storm this, monster storm, frankenstorm sandy. are you there? >> caller: hi, heather. how are you? >> i understand you have been at this for 21 years, have you chased these storms. how did this one compare? >> caller: this is new territory. in the two decades i have been photographing hurricanes and tornadoes, i have never seen anything like this. i was very impressed with the way the forecasters both governmentally and privately hammed this so far in advance. >> have you covered many hurricane, katrina and isaac. compare, if you can, for us, some of the images you are seeing of sandy and images that you yourself took from those two storms? >> well, katrina was a fascinating experience, very destructive and the biggest storm i think i have seen, certainly the most destructive hurricane. i was -- dicover isaac a few months ago and irene in new york city. people are learning very quickly, the power of water. it does
president next tuesday. >> i would add, right before we came on, i got a memo from jim messina the obama campaign manager essentially pushing back on the idea that pennsylvania is now a swing state. so to mark's point, the president himself might not be engaged and rightly so but his campaign is still active. this is not 16 days it's six days. >> the romney campaign put out a memo about pennsylvania. >> absolutely. >> let me ask mark akbout pennsylvania. i was there last week. the republicans saying we can do this, we can win pennsylvania, democrats saying it's not even in play. what is your assessment? >> well the obama campaign needs pennsylvania to win. the romney campaign doesn't. i don't think they would be wasting the money in pennsylvania on the republican side if they thought they had no chance or at least a chance to distract the democrats. if the romney campaign went on the air in new york, i don't think the obama campaign would feel compelled to match the dollars there. if the obama campaign went on the air in texas tv i don't think the romney campaign would feel the need to g
. >> for more on where it is going and what's left we are joined by accuweather's jim dickey. good morning, jim. >> good morning, rob and paula. well, the worst looks like it is over here. sandy will slowly weaken as we head forward. a look at radar imagery, the northeast and mid-atlantic. >> okay. technical difficulty there. we apologize for that too. the question we were talking about earlier, the brunt of the storm is over. at issue, back surge, we are talking about, of course, high tide, as well, in a few hours this morning. >> i was talking with our meteorologist ginger zee. i said is it over? what more can we expect? she says there will be a back surge. with the back surge, you might expect higher wind. we don't know to anticipate more flooding, probably going to come when the sunrises. when the sun rises that's when we'll see the aftermath of the extent of the storm. sam champion our weather editor said, quote, this is the scenario everyone feared when making disaster plans. >> that's why, nickname it the perfect storms. so many dangerous factors collided and now we are seeing the afterm
, and it's only going to get colder as the night goes on. manager jim leland thinks a little home dugout advantage will help the tigers. >> they have all kind of stuff. we have heaters in the dugout for both teams, obviously. ours is going to be a little warmer than theirs i think tomorrow night but that's all right. we won't tell them that. you can't be worried about how cold it is. i threw a game in chicago last year, where it was 34 degrees and it was raining and sleeting. and i threw the emball pretty well that night. so i don't suspect the cold weather's going to be much of an issue. >> if i'm thinking about how cold it is, it means i'm not thinking about what donald rumsfelding on the mound. >> cold for everybody. cold for the fans, the beer's cold. enjoy it. >> the n.h.l. has announced they've cancelled all games for november. so pavelski is playing in russia. a pretty pass by pavelski to stapleton on the goal. that is a look at sports. see you tonight at 5:30. >>> coming up, one more look at today's top stories, including where people are braising for heavy snow and rain from hur

in the details. >> reporter: this is what did it all. for 32 years, now retired baltimore city officer jim snyder tried to do all the little things right. >> i stopped him. >> reporter: even in the biggest story of his career. >> to help stop a killer. >> reporter: the video may seem dated now, but the memory of that month back in 2002 is far from faded. ten people killed, three critically injured. the targets as unsettling as the act. gas stations, buses, schools. the dc sniper paralyzed life inside and out two beltways putting evything in life on hold. >> you had to live through it to appreciate what we had gone through that day, just to get gas. >> reporter: snyder didn't just live through it, he worked it. he chased his fair share of white box trucks and misguided jbut it ^where he would find the devil. >> a chevy caprice parked at this gas station blocking the door where he knew the restaurant got its delivery. the windows fogged, clothes piled up in the back even what he thought was a rusted out hole in the trunk. the time 2:30 in the morningment >> you didn't think much of it? >> no. just
news. that storm right now is down towards the coast of florida. that's where jim cantore has been all day long. >> hey, doug, good evening. our conditions here are certainly improving in terms of the wind and rain, unfortunately the surf is still very, very high. it doesn't take much to have one of these waves just roll up the beach, push a little over the debris further than what we have seen. we are just past high tide now. but i will tell you, the resort we are staying at doesn't anticipate this kind of wave action. even though the storm is over two miles away, we are still getting huge waves. those waves will get bigger and impact larger areas. these are of historic proportions. almost hard it graps meet logically from what we saw five days ago to now what has been pretty much the story. the models have been sticking with this and sticking with it. as far as me, i'm heading up to new york city with the models kind of honing in on that area and certainly the potential to stop the city that never sleeps. that is something that i will be covering for the weather channel come tomorrow

to be affected. >> jim accosta is in cleveland, ohio, with the romney campaign, so, jim, we know that both of these men have canceled their events and from the romney folks' perspective, from their campaign, what was the thinking behind it? >> well, suzanne, i think when the president started containsing his events, it probably started to dawn on the romney campaign that it would be difficult to get out there and do a whole lot of campaigning in a time of national crisis. >> as you mentioned, the romney campaign did announce earlier today it is cancelling events for this evening and tomorrow. it is going to go ahead and carry through with an event set for davenport, iowa, later on this afternoon, and then that's it. suzanne, basically this campaign is in a holding pattern. it is in limbo until all of this passes. just so everybody knows, the governor is not going to be down for the next day and a half. they say don't describe it like that. the other thing we don't know where he will physically be. we assume at this point, suzanne, that they are work out those logistics. earlier today at an
